Deadlines Looming...So This is Quick!

Anyone else out there cringing this week when it comes
to even thinking about doing a blog post on Blogger?
It's been an up and down week for sure, but I thought
it was time to share just a little something with you!

I've actually been a busy bee in my studio working
on a variety of deadlines this week and have had this
and a few other cards sitting in the wings.

I am still so loving MME's 'Stella & Rose' collection
and all of the fabby embellishments that go along with it!

The die-cut letters for the sentiment were embellished
with teeny tiny pearls and the top border was punched
using the new Martha 'Star Burst' border punch.
Look at how dimensional those die cuts are!!!

Before I go, I just wanted to share that I have
a project in the current issue of...

I always enjoy being published here and am honored
when they choose my work.
In case you missed it, I hope you will check out
THIS ARTICLE on 'Building the Shabby Chic Look'
that I wrote for them as part of my
'Building Block of Design' Series.

Well I know it was quick, but....
I am working on a projects for 3 upcoming blog hops
and I was asked to be a guest designer for a great
creative blog which requires quite a few cards to be done.
I am happy to say that I am already finished with this
coming week's challenges for
The Play Date Cafe & CAS-ual Fridays...thank goodness!

I'd love to know what creative things you have 
coming up and what you might be working on.
Please leave a comment...
I love hearing from you!
